This week’s 5/1 shot contains just three matches and relies heavily on Osasuna and Deportivo drawing in La Liga’s early game on Sunday morning, while hoping that strong favourites Atletico Madrid and AC Milan can bring home the treble later on in the day.

Why did all three selections stand out from the crowd? Read on to find out…
AC Milan to beat Bologna @ 21/50
AC Milan might be sitting in the unfamiliar position of seventh place in Serie A this season but they can take confidence from the fact that this has little to do with their recent home record.
The Rossoneri have won eight of their last nine games in all domestic competitions at the San Siro and on Sunday they host a side whose away record in the league has been woeful.
Bologna have lost eight of their ten games on the road so far and have conceded more than double the amount of goals than they have scored, leaving them with the second-worst goal difference away from home in the league.
To put it into perspective, the seven goals that Bologna have scored away from home is two fewer than the tally Milan’s top scorer Stephan El Shaarawy has managed away from home on his own.
And to add to the visitors’ worries, they haven’t beaten Milan home or away since August 2008 and have lost five of the last eight meetings between the sides.
For these reasons, a home win is definitely on the cards again in this one.
Atletico Madrid to beat Levante @ 7/25
With 18 goals in 21 appearances so far this season, Atletico Madrid’s Radamel Falcao is one of the hottest properties in world football. In fact, it is hard to imagine how they ever lose a game with such a prolific striker in the team.
Well, actually, it’s not that difficult to imagine, because it is a fact that Atletico always win at home. In ten games at the Vicente Calderon Stadium this season they have won all ten, scoring 30 goals and conceding just six.
With stats like that you would fancy them to beat anybody, least of all a side like Levante, who have seen their league position hampered by a mediocre record on the road, having lost five, drawn two and won three away from home so far.
And if you weren’t convinced enough already, Levante haven’t beaten Atletico in Madrid since 2006, losing each of the last four meetings.
Osasuna and Deportivo to draw @ 23/10
Basement boys Osasuna face second-bottom Deportivo in a relegation six-pointer on Sunday but, as is so often the case in these tussles, a draw looks like being the most likely outcome.
Both sides have drawn at least twice as many games as they have won this season, with the hosts wracking up six draws compared to just three wins and the visitors drawing seven while also taking maximum points on only three occasions.
As well as this, three of the last four meetings between the sides at the El Sadar Stadium have ended all square, including the last two in a row, while both sides also drew in their respective La Liga games last week – Deportivo drawing away to Sociedad and Osasuna sharing a point at home to Real Madrid.
At 23/10, there’s a tasty profit to be made by adding this to your treble.
